Peak Lenin Expedition
Departed 1st August 2019
Leader: Ken Applegate
Sadly no summit for the team. Rebeeca decided to head back down at 6200m with the local guide. The rest of the team pushed it out to 6800m, but the summit was just beyond their grasp.
They are now all back down safely at ABC and will head down to BC tomorrow.
The team have completed their acclimatisation phase having been up to camp 3, and are now back down at ABC. They will have a few rest days and keep an eye on the weather, before planning to make a summit attempt on Monday.
After sleeping on the summit of a 5137m peak for acclimatisation last night, the team descended back to a rainy ABC today where they have been resting and relaxing. Tomorrow they move up to camp 2 where they will spend the night.
Ken and the team have arrived at base camp along with all their kit.
